Free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, dropped him as a client on Tuesday.

Manziel released a statement on Tuesday, saying he hopes “to take care of the issues in front of him right now,” trying focus on what he has to do to play in 2016.

Rosenhaus reportedly threatened to drop Manziel last week if the former Browns quarterback didn’t seek treatment this off-season. 

This is the second time Manziel has been dropped in three months — Erik Burkhardt severed ties with Manziel in February.

In January, LeBron James' MRMR marketing firm dropped Manziel. The move came just days after Manziel was accused of striking his ex-girlfriend during an altercation in Dallas. He could face potential NFL discipline.

Manziel remains an NFL free agent and is currently living in Los Angeles.
